With the top eight teams remaining, the quarterfinals will feature the tournament's top squads. Here's how those games will shake out and set up for a memorable semifinal round.
1. Sweden over 8. Czech Republic
The Swedes' depth will be too much for the Czechs to handle, as Ondrej Pavelec will have no answer for the onslaught he will face.
7. Slovakia over 2. Canada
In the tournament's first true upset, the Slovaks will stun the defending champs. It will be especially rough for fans of the Montreal Canadiens, as former goaltender Jaroslav Halak will get the better of current netminder Carey Price.
3. Russia vs. 6. Switzerland
This will go right down to the wire, as Jonas Hiller will put on a goaltending display. But in overtime, the Russians will advance to the semifinals.
4. United States vs. 5. Finland
The Finns will be looking for revenge after they were blown out 6-0 by the U.S. team in the 2010 Olympic semifinals, but the Americans will again reign supreme.
That will leave us with the following semifinal matchups:
1. Sweden vs. 4. United States
7. Slovakia vs. 3. Russia
Who will advance to the gold-medal game? Who will have to settle for bronze? The next two slides will answer those questions.
